Re: the way Trump treats Women and Mexicans....

I wouldn't want Bill Clinton near any female, nor would I want Barack Obama near any young male.

I would be more willing to let Donald Trump near a woman. There haven't been dozens of women come out and claim he raped them. Nor dozens of young men saying they had sex with Trump.

Re: .357 Mag Handloading with H110 vs Lil'Gun Powders. A Surprising Result

If you don't fire a lot of rounds in a short time, barrel wear might not be an issue. L'il gun does give lower pressure, and that usually helps extend barrel life. Maybe the low pressure but higher heat will cause equal barrel life.
